HalogenLife Interviews Jan Vormann


HalogenLife recently published a terrific interview with Wooster fave, Jan Vormann.  In the interview Jan explains his use of tiny toy bricks (not always Legos):

“I think the idea fits well in our times. First, of course, it is still a contemporary toy that kids play with. Secondly, architecture nowadays allows crossovers like these. Contemporary design has opened possibilities of understanding life in a positive, colorful way. The Lego brick has a nostalgic value amongst different generations worldwide, but at the same time it is all up to date. The combination of stone bricks and plastic bricks creates all kind of different contrasts that, in my eyes, illuminate relationships between esthetics and functionality. Undoubtedly the project bears depth in ways of perception of reality. But besides, it also just looks great!”
